As you've probably noticed, California Green Solutions does not cover political issues. However, this news story is about solutions. And provides hints about how politicians are thinking about clean tech solutions. This line of thinking could infuse strategies for international trade...After Kyoto -- clean tech tariffs and international trade couuld collide or offer faster deployment. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson urged all sides to work together to "accelerate the prospects" of a U.N.-led solution later in 2007 at talks in Bali, Indonesia.

"We must tear down artificial barriers that impede the spread of today's clean technologies. There is no moral or economic reason for tariffs or non-tariff barriers on environmental goods or services."

The U.S. talks, following on the heels of the United Nations' climate gathering Monday, is an attempt to influence what happens after 2012, when the U.N.-brokered Kyoto Protocol mandating greenhouse gas cuts by industrial nations expires. The emphasis, as with much of Bush's climate approach, is on the sharing of green technology. SOURCE:
